Applications Software Technology (AST) LLC, a leading provider of IT consulting and managed services, today announced the version 3.0 release of AST’s automated Testing-as-a-Service (TaaS), powered by the unique and proprietary AST Autonomous Cloud Tester (ACT) tool.

Within the 3.0 release, both new and existing customers benefit from the most recent advancements of the automated testing service, including:

  • Up to 85% reduction in patch testing cycle time with dynamic provisioning, scaling of cloud-hosted test lab infrastructure, and parallel processing of test automation execution.
